JAMIS Software Corporation proudly continues support to the Professional Services Council (PSC) this holiday season to collect food and donations for the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) during PSC’s annual membership meeting
JAMIS Software Corporation, the leading provider of world-class project ERP software, is once again partnering with the Professional Services Council (PSC) this holiday season to collect food for the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) during PSC’s annual membership meeting on December 15.
JAMIS asks the attendees of PSC’s annual membership meeting to bring non-perishable food items, a Giant/Safeway gift card, or to donate directly via CC with onsite supporting PSC personnel. Those who donate will be entered into a drawing for a GoPro, thanks to JAMIS Software Corporation.
The mission of AFAC, a community-based non-profit is to provide supplemental groceries to Arlington neighbors in need. AFAC serves an average of 2,200 families each week. The organization receives 65 percent of the food it distributes—including essential nutrition items such as eggs, milk, fresh produce, bread, and oatmeal—from direct donations.
The ever-increasing high cost of living in the region often means that many families find it difficult to make ends meet. The AFAC reports that approximately 31,500 residents of Arlington County are considered to be food insecure with 7,000 of them currently being served by their organization. AFAC sees an acute need for donations during this time of year because the number of families seeking assistance typically grows between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.
JAMIS strives to enrich the communities in which we conduct business and is committed to continuing to support to the Arlington community. “JAMIS admires the outstanding work AFAC does in our community throughout the year,” said President and CEO of JAMIS Software, Jeff Noolas. “All of us at JAMIS want to raise awareness and provide our support to help our community fight hunger.”
“AFAC is a vital resource for Arlington families, and we’re happy to support their mission to help our neighbors in need,” said PSC President and CEO, David Berteau.
AFAC is located at 2708 South Nelson Street in Arlington, VA. For more information about how to organize a food drive or donate, please visit afac.org
